Fast & Furious 8: first look at Charlize Theron’s villain

22 May 2016 10:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Meet the new villain of the Fast & Furious series, as played by Charlize Theron...

Filming continues on Fast & Furious 8, which is shooting in Cuba, New York and Iceland, amongst other places. F Gary Gray is helming this one, off the back of his success with Straight Outta Compton. And the film is due in cinemas in April 2017.

Perhaps the most significant new addition to the cast this time around is Charlize Theron. She’s playing a villain by the name of Cipher in the new movie, and Universal has released an image of her from the new movie. This one, in fact...

If you like movie villains with Metallica T-shirts, then you’re in the right place.

Fast & Furious 8 also stars Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Lucas Black, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Elsa Palatky and Scott Eastwood. More on the film as we hear it, of course… »

Diesel Wants Justin Lin Back For "Fast 10"

19 May 2016 9:13 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though Rob Cohen started the franchise with the first film and various helmers have handled the numerous entries over the years, no filmmaker is more synonymous with the "Fast and Furious" franchise than Justin Lin.

Having helmed the third through sixth of the films, including the critically acclaimed apex of the series in "Fast Five," Lin sat both the seventh and currently in production eighth film of the series out to work on other projects.

Universal Pictures has already announced plans for a ninth and tenth film in the series to be released in 2019 and 2021 respectively, with that tenth film is set to serve as the finale for the main story of the franchise and likely Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto character. Spinoffs and prequels are planned, but 'Fast 10' is the effective being seen as the "end" of the main thrust of the series.

First Trailer For Lethal Weapon TV Series Introduces The New Riggs And Murtaugh

18 May 2016 7:44 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following in the footsteps of Mel Gibson and Danny too-old-for-this-shit Glover, Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans, Sr. pick up arms as Riggs and Murtaugh in the first trailer for Fox’s upcoming Lethal Weapon TV series.

Featuring a pilot directed by McG (Terminator Salvation), today’s snippet introduces the fast-talking, wonderfully snarky odd couple that we know and love – only with half the charm. Sporting the cool swagger of ex-Navy Seal-turned-detective Martin Riggs, Crawford hits many of the character beats made famous by Mel Gibson throughout the Lethal Weapon series, but at least based on today’s admittedly brief trailer, the on-screen chemistry with Wayans’ by-the-book Murtaugh feels forced and cartoonish, even for a Lethal Weapon storyline.

Speaking of which, after buddying up – much to the dismay of Murtaugh – the mismatched duo find themselves caught up in “a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and into a »

Just the right age for this sh*t! ‘Lethal Weapon’ trailer lands

17 May 2016 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Hot on the heels of a series order, Fox has released a full-blown trailer for its small screen reboot of Lethal Weapon. Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans Sr take the roles of human powder keg Martin Riggs and ageing partner Roger Murtaugh, legendary ass-kickers of the Lapd.

How do Crawford and Wayans measure up to filmic forebears Mel Gibson and Danny Glover? Surprisingly well it seems, if this is anything to go by:

Fans will notice certain elements are present and correct, from the classic Eighties logo to Riggs’ beach side trailer home. The interplay between the leads looks solid and the whole deal is shot through with the same mix of ludicrous, brightly-lit action and buddy antics that made the original so beloved. It’s worth noting however the YouTube likes are only just keeping on top of the dislikes!

The Exorcist And Lethal Weapon TV Series Secure Full Seasons At Fox

11 May 2016 7:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon TV series are pressing ahead

Two more TV series based on movies are definitely coming to our screens, Fox’s Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist...

There’s a rush on in Hollywood at the moment regarding television series inspired by movies. At our last count, there were 33 of these projects in development across various networks. Now, two of them are definitely pressing ahead.

Fox has ordered full seasons of Lethal Weapon and The Exorcist, the latter of which is bound to be inspired by William Peter Blatty’s original novel as well as its film adaptation. 

Here’s the official blurb about the Lethal Weapon TV series...

Lethal Weapon is based on the hit movie franchise that starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. In the modern-day series, Clayne Crawford plays Martin Riggs and Damon Wayans Sr plays Roger Murtaugh.

‘Lethal Weapon’ gets a series

10 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mel Gibson was supplanted in moviegoers’ imaginations recently as Mad Max. Now it’s the turn of his other iconic character Martin Riggs to get a facelift, as Fox orders a full TV run of Lethal Weapon.

Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans Sr (pictured above) grab the baton off Gibson and Danny Glover. Psychologically unbalanced Riggs and perpetually stressed partner Roger Murtaugh gave the bad guys of La hell across four action buddy movies, which made more dough than a Papa Johns on a double shift.

The reboot co-stars Fast & Furious franchise favourite Jordana Brewster. Helmer McG oversaw the pilot (written by Matt Miller) and he’ll exec produce for Warner Bros Television. Expect explosions, mismatched cop capers and the possible return of characters such as fast-talking Leo Getz, who Joe Pesci played on the big screen.

So, if you grew up in the Eighties you’re going to feel well and truly old. »

Must-Do Mondays: Waterlight Sunscreen Just Made Getting Ready so Much Easier

25 April 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You don't need a lecture on the importance of Spf (been there, done that). You could, however, benefit from a sunscreen hack that saves time and doesn't mess with your makeup in the a.m. Most mornings you're in a rush, so you're lucky if you properly wash your face, let alone get it slathered in a shield of sunscreen. Even if you swear by a daily application like Jennifer Aniston and other seemingly ageless celebs, a traditional Spf adds a heavy, filmy residue that sometimes is not ideal for layering makeup over.  So how do you make sure you're covered? Well, if you're Jordana Brewster, you enlist a handy little product called waterlight sunscreen. Just like your »
